Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
500 mt. s.l.m
Yeald per Hectare:
30-35 ql. per Ha
This wine originates from the best Sangiovese grapes produced in a 30 year-old vineyard which the grandfather Assunto, whom the wine is named after, planted. The yield per hectare is around 30-35 ql. After the harvest the grapes go through fermentation in temperature-controlled steel vats for 20-25 days and undergo pumping over and délestage to maximize the extraction of all the structural components of the wine from the skins giving it longevity and structure.
The Assunto Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is aged for about 30 months in small 7.50 hl French and Slavonian oak barrels from which the wine acquires its fragrances and that elegance which is expressed in the glass.
After ageing in wood, the wine is bottled and refined for six months then released on the market not earlier than five years after the harvest.
Tasting and Pairing:
Intense ruby red in colour tending to garnet. Elegant and intense bouquet. On the palate, dry, warm, robust and persistent. Excellent with game, roasted red meat, and aged cheese. Wine to lay down.
